Episode 506: CALculator


Len Padilla joins up with Harry Lloyd to discuss what turned out to be a VERY British Czech GP. Three winners that no one saw coming made for an exciting weekend even if Harry did get a little wet in the process of it all. We also have a flood of listener emails on a wide variety of topics to kick the show off. In typical MotoPod style Alex Rins broke his collarbone after the show and Bradley Smith had a suspected broken femur at the Endurance World Championship, drama!

Episode 505: Fenati’s Fall


Harry Lloyd does it solo with a little help from everyone’s favourite Google Translate lady voice. We start off with a little life update before jumping head first into a pile of Moto3 news and drama. Surprisingly enough it was a young Moto3 rider who stole a number of headlines over the course of the weekend, but for all the wrong reasons. Aside from the flaws of Fenati, we had a glorious weekend at the Red Bull Ring, a circuit Harry is more than happy to go back to. We’re pretty sure Ducati will be more than pleased when the Austrian GP rolls around next year too…

Episode 504: Naming Rights


Jared Mees 00:54:40
Brad Baker 00:56:49
Martin Darlington bloods in new co-host Skyler Vickroy after a little announcement. They get straight down to business and figure out how the hell someone gets a name like ’Skyler Vickroy’. It’s not just about names as the pair also talk the little kid bits of news but in true MotoPod style the news kept breaking so Harry Lloyd steps in to cover some more WSBK silly season and the Suzuka 8 Hour. Once more Scott Bolton has been out in the field and has collected wonderful chats with Baker and Mees.

Episode 503: ThruxtonRing


Harry Lloyd and Martin Darlington jump right into testing in Austria. It was a very red affair but what will the race after summer produce? There’s a couple more bits of Silly Season news and Harry and Martin talk about what they expect from the 2017 rider pairings. Then of course it’s time to chat BSB as we remember just how good a circuit Thruxton is and how quickly the BSB rules seem to change.

Episode 502: Lord of the Ring


Dave Neal and Martin Darlington are back together for the first time in a while and get down to the pressing issues of the day: sunsets. The talk does, of course, eventually turn to the thrilling weekend in Germany where Marquez surfed through the soaking wet to take a decisive championship lead while Jorge Lorenzo forgot his floaty arms. Summer it’s almost upon us so it’s time to figure out what to do without motorcycles going around in circles. Luckily BSB and the Suzuka 8-Hour will help us through…

Episode 501: British Rock America


Martin and Harry are here to talk about a weekend FULL of Superbike action. From America to England there was racing everywhere and some high quality racing. Laguna Seca was as beautiful as ever while the BSB riders put on a wonderful show. Championship favorites have emerged in MotoGP, WSBK, BSB and even the MotoPod fantasy league!

Episode 500: JackAssen


Danny Kent 00:50:17
Nicky Hayden 01:01:31
Jack Miller 01:05:10
Cal Crutchlow 01:17:46
It’s a historic episode so we keep up a bit of tradition as Martin and Jules come together to preview the Dutch GP on the very same day on which the first EVER MotoPod, or MotoGPod, was recorded. Settle in as it’s a bit of a long one. Martin and Jules spend most of the time going through MotoPod history. They also predict Assen, but as you can probably guess they were a little wrong… It’s was an incredible Sunday in Assen, the 800th lightweight class, the 250th MotoGP are and Assen’s first Sunday race made a bit of a historic day for all three classes and for MotoPod. Dave and Harry then swoop in to talk about all the drama, be warned, Harry still likes Jack Miller… Here’s to 500 more episodes!

Episode 499: Settling In


Benny Solis 00:49:32
Cam Beaubier 00:56:20
Cam Peterson 01:12:12
After a week off we’re back! Or at least Harry Lloyd is. Silly season has finally settled down for all the major seats on the grid so we take the chance to quickly run over who is going where next year before running over the WSBK results from Misano. Jonathan Rea was back to his best as Tom Sykes failed to find that extra 1% to push him and Chaz Davies doomed Harry’s fantasy team…

Episode 498: For Salom


The weekend began on a dark note as Luis Salom tragically lost his life in an accident during Free Practice 2. The Catalan GP continued on with a revised track layout, all the riders out to honour the memory of their friend and former rival. Just like the riders Harry and Dave, who were in the same room for once, talk about the positives of the weekend. The racing world was stretched to its limits this weekend but fortunately the family which makes motorsport so special pulled together and put aside their differences. Ride In Peace Luis.

Episode 497: Not Quite Mugiallo


Martin Darlington and Harry Lloyd chat about Mugello, a roll coaster of a weekend full of ups and downs for a number of riders. There were engine blow ups, sore necks, crashes and titanic battles across the field. All three classes produced some of the best racing we’ve seen in a good long while and a special third host joins us towards the end to help us wrap it all up. The BSB chat is a bit brief as neither Harry nor Martin had a chance, nor knew how to, watch it. We’re into the midst of the race season and there’s no sign of it slowing down!
